Consilience and Scientific Confirmation

A nice piece on consilience is just out in Philosophy Now magazine.  Written by Toni Vogel Carey, the article highlights the different views of consilience held by Whewell/Herschel on the one hand and E.O. Wilson/Stephen Jay Gould on the other.  Definitely worth a look by anyone interested in scientific confirmation.
